The Illusion of Now, The Mirage of Then

B

eing in a position to help someone in a predicament they are in can offer lots of insight. Especially when they have no idea that you have the wherewithal to help them. There is no human being living that has never come to a rocky patch in their walk of life. In fact, this happens very often to those great souls who dream big. In a previous post we talked about the finite mind and the infinite mind. The infinite mind is definitely not limited with any empirical force we know.

The Infinite Mind

This mind is not human to say the least. I have heard from the good book “…for as far as the heavens are above the earth, so great is the difference between may ways and yours….” That is a paraphrase. Today’s post goes out to all those visionaries (and non visionaries) who are caught up between a rock and a hard place. Great, you have been told to dream and dream big.

You have been motivated to suspend reality and THINK BIG. You have been encouraged to have a BHAG (Big, Hairy and Audacious Goal)…and you have been obedient on all counts. However, you find yourself wondering ‘whether this stuff works after all’. The things, events and people surrounding your immediate environment depict a picture that is totally far from what you want your reality to be. In fact you feel like the opposite of what you want is taking place.

Mind games. It is a mind battle. If you choose to focus on the negatives of the now, you are not being wise. You are only accessing the finite mind, limited only to see as far as the horizon. The finite mind has no control over situations that seem to overrun you, and that is why you need not trust your limited mind, ESPECIALLY when things are tough. Reach for a higher vision, dream on and hold on.

Dreamy?

However, more often, the other ‘reach’ that people grasp in valley moments is to relegate life to the future. We wrote sometime back that about ‘happily never after’. This is where the problem lies. Granted, hope will take you through today, but by all means, never suspend the LIFE of the NOW…in the hope of LIVING some time later on. It is always a mirage. You keep reaching for a sizzling life then, at the expense of living right now.

My advice is for us to acknowledge all that is going through now, and tune in to a higher Mindset that sees far greater and wider than we ever could. Yes, we need to have dreams and visions for tomorrow, but by all means there is something you can do today.[perfectpullquote align=”right” cite=”Lawrence Namale” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=”15″]   never suspend the LIFE of the NOW…in the hope of LIVING some time later on.

I leave you with what Helen Keller said:

I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish humble tasks as though they were great and noble. The world is moved along, not only by the mighty shoves of its heroes, but also by the aggregate of the tiny pushes of each honest worker”.

To Your Success and Prosperity….
